My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the day trip we took to Pompeii. The tour guides were absolutely amazing. I feel bad that I cannot remember their names but they had great knowledge of the local area and had a lot of great knowledge to the history of the places we visited. One tour guide was from Australia and had longer hair, and the other was an Italian woman who was very pleasant and helped us find a great restaurant after the tour. We would definitely do another tour with the company that Viator set us up with.
Very organized and followed time schedule well. Our tour guide was Sara and she and fellow guide Elena provided helpful facts and education about Rome, Pompeii, Naples and sites on the bus ride. We stopped after 1.5 hours for a break then went on to the museum in Naples. We were given 1.5 hours to explore the museum in Naples on our own. It was an appropriate amount of time. Next was a pizza lunch and then on to Pompei. Enzo was our guide and was great! Lots of knowledge as he is local to the area and his ancestors worked the excavation. I think we spent 2 hours touring the highlights of Pompei and then back to the bus for the ride home. After 1.5 hours we stopped again for a break, limencello tasting and gift shop. We had a great time.
I took this tour on the 28/11/15. This was an excellent and well organised tour. If you're going to do a tour from Rome do this tour and you really need the whole day so I wouldn't go for a half day option.
Our tour guides were fantastic and I loved the way they kept feeding us with snippets of history. I hope these guys get paid well for their efforts. 10 out of 10 to our 2 guides and the driver!
I didn't realise but lunch was included and it was Pizza with salad and a drink. We spent 1 hour in the Museum and 2 hours at Pompeii. After chatting with some other people on the tour we recommend
To spend longer at Pompeii and maybe less time at lunch or not have that lunch break and give people the option to grab a quick lunch at the site. I personally would have liked to see more and maybe at a quicker pace but I understand the tour needs to cater for everyone's needs.
There are toilet breaks and the guides check to make sure you are ok on the bus. Our group was very nice too which helps when you're on a tour all day.
I feel confident to go back by myself now.
One of the highlights of my entire holiday and it was my first day in Europe!! We did not get to visit the Volcano due to bad weather but got to see so much in the museum. The guides Alessandra and Robert were awesome! Pompeii is so beautiful still and must have been incredible in its original state.
brilliant day out, well worth the money, trips reps amazingly knowledgeable
Excellent ! Guides were wonderful, very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!
AWESOME experience with the best tour guides! We had a wonderful day touring the ancient city of Pompeii, and the hike of Mount Vesuvius. Travels with motion sickness, be warned. The bus ride to Vesuvius can be definitely tricky. Overall, though, a FANTASTIC experience!
long day but worth the effort excellent guides lots of fun would love a day out with them next time I am in rome
Lucas was great. He has so much information. In our way to Pompei, he kept giving us information that made the trip look so much shorter. The tour guide in Pompei was good, but the visit to the volcano crater, Vesuvius, took to much time and we had only one hour and a half in Pompei.
Robert and Stephanie were great tour guides - lots of knowledge about Rome and the sights. Incredibly funny too!
Stephanie, Luka, and Marios may or may not have spelled those right were all marvelous. I learned a ton and had fun doing it. The lunch was wonderful. Hiking up Mt Vesuvius was challenging, but well worth the sore legs and just sore everything, tbh at the end of it all. Getting to Pompeii and learning more about their civilisation was just the icing on the cake. It truly was remarkable. Luka and Stephanie's Rome 101 at the end of the tour was especially appreciated and myself and a couple other tour guests took advantage of a certain gelato recommendation immediately after the tour.
Pompeii is incredible and this was a good one-day trip. Everything was as advertised, except that the bus trip to and from Pompeii took a little longer than we expected more than three hours. Nevertheless, our guide was a very knowledgeable, nice guy, and he made even the bus trip interesting.
Except problems that we have had with confirmation of our booking, everything else was marvelous. Trip was very well organized with two guides Antonela and Etore. They did great job together. What to say about visiting Vesuv and Pompeii, it's a must see...
We had everything we needed, very skilled driver, tour guide, and site guide, great lunch. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. The hike is somewhat strenuous, but there is enough time to take in the amazing view from the top.
Comfortable mini bus journey half way up mount vesuvus, not one for people with a fear of heights like myself who couldn't make it to the top but a great experience none the less. The volcano is due to go off again in the next 10 years so worth seeing. Pompeii is amazing, lots to see and very informative guide.
Great tour had a wonderful time we had two wonderful tour guides one was from Australia and the other one from Valenzuela very knowledgeable and funny as well highly recommend it.
Organized, comfortable and entertaining.
Our guides, Rob and Andy, were great. Rob knows his facts, Andy knows how to tell a story.
Our local guide in Pompeii was also great.
i was on my own traveling and this was perfect.
I liked the trip, although due to loss of one lady on Vezuvi mountain we were late at Pompeii and had to rush through it.
What a Great day out. Trip was well organised from start to finish. Coach was comfortable and our tour guide Stephanie was absolutely fantastic. Full day was filled with interesting facts about Rome, the route we travelled and Pompeii itself. The journey could have been a bit long and boring had it not been for the Tour guides and their interesting in-depth knowledge. Pompeii was amazing, there was much more to it than i had thought and i would highly recommend this trip.
We had two guides on our trip- one gave a lot of interesting anecdotes about Italians which was interesting. Pompeii was excellent from a historical perspective. We had an excellent guide there. Then we had a very nice lunch with traditional Pizza from Naples , followed by a thunder storm on Mt Vesuvius.
Be aware that lunch is not in Naples as advertised.
